APA freshman receives national Amelia Earhart award

CAP cadets Imel, Cox and Reedy earn accolades

(Continued)

ANDERSON, Ind. —

Cox said she chose to take the test for promotion because she thought it’d be a great experience and she likes what CAP and the U.S. Air Force stand for.

Both she and Reedy were promoted to cadet second lieutenants and Cox said she’s really proud of accomplishing the goal she had set for herself.

Reedy said a part of the reason she wanted to try for promotion was to help encourage others, to “lead them in the right direction.”

“I feel really honored,” she said. “I worked this hard and got through it. It’s not exactly easy.”

Henderson said the students do “work really hard” to get where they are and that the staff tries to “teach them as much as we can” so that they can go further.

Commandant Robert Guillaume said the awards look great on a resume and can lead to national scholarships along with invites to the National Leadership Conference.
